Natural Disaster Relief Fund

Catholic Charities-USA is able to provide financial support to all regions affected and Catholic Charities-USA is the best qualified agency to direct funding to the local Catholic Charities dealing with the ramifications of the storm. Over the past four years Catholic Charities, Diocese of Joliet has been the recipient of Catholic Charities-USA disaster relief funding when two separate tornados struck Coal City and when the diocese experienced catastrophic flooding in Kankakee and Watseka.
